I waited until 46k to diet, but most do it right away. I still had some warranty issues after diet but have great relationship with dealer and had them repaired.

That black truck has an 09/16 manufacture date so it is a very early job 1 truck, like one of the first which means it more than likely has the older style smaller connecting rod.

That red truck with the king coilovers and King Resi shocks on the back would be my choice. If it truly does ride rough, the shocks and coilovers may need adjustment, tires may need more or less air pressure put in or out out as well. The red truck was actually manufactured in 2017 so it is a later Job 1 so it may or may not have updated connecting rods, I'm going to guess based off what I know from other trucks being made around that date that it probably does have them.

Tires are at 52-55. I adjusted the reservoirs they were all different stiffness on all 4. Rear was fully soft and fully firm. Rides a little smoother but I think tires arenít balanced and being mud tires swapping to AT nitto G2 if I get it. Then maybe swap out some suspension parts to smooth out the ride some more.

I bought the red ruby lifted truck. Iíve done some add ons now. And already got it out working some small jobs. Did a diet to it...

Is it worth keeping the factory exhaust? The guy I bought the 5Ē from told me the exhaust is like $15k to buy new again... but would I ever need it again? Should I sell it out right to someone or whatís it worth? Or should I keep it?

Go punch that guy... If you have plans to ever trade it in, keep it so you can put emissions back on.

Nice choice! I kept mine, it's sitting under my porch just in case. It'll go with the truck if I sell it.

Rust wonít effect it much I guess?

Also man do you know of anyway to get the tires calibrated for speed @ 37Ē tires? My EZLynk only goes to 34.5Ē trying to get a speeding ticket dismissed
